Portugal and Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo recently sent the rumour mills into overdrive after reports emerged that he wanted former Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho to take over the reigns of the Italian club despite clashing with his fellow countryman during their time in Madrid.
However, according to Italian newspaper, Corriere dello Sport via the Express, the 34-year-old instead believes that another former Madrid manager in Carlo Ancelotti is the perfect manager to take over from Max Allegri at Juve.

The duo shared a great relationship during their time at the Bernabeu, with Ancelotti helping the club end their long wait for European success by leading them to the UEFA Champions League title in 2014.
Ronaldo views the Italian in good light as he believes that he would bring his attacking style of play to Juventus, though it is unlikely that Napoli would let him go in the summer. The 59-year-old who managed the Bianconeri between 1999-2001 is valued highly at Napoli with the man himself recently revealing that he has no interest in returning to Turin.
With Allegri leaving the club after five successful seasons, the likes of Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri and Lazio's Simone Inzaghi have been linked with the job, though no official confirmation on their new coach has been given by the Juventus board.
